Hi Guys,

I published SPF record for my domain, as given below.
"v=spf1 a mx -all"

And I tried sending mail using a different mail server to my gmail
account. But instead of mail getting rejected, the mail was delivered
successfully.

But from email header in my gmail account, I found this: Received-SPF: fail

But why was the mail delivered instead of getting rejected?
Can some one help me regarding this?
